Building prospects

Almost 20 percent of young people between the ages of 15 and 30 are unemployed in the country. This is unfortunate because young people are usually considered to be a productive segment of the population. These statistics are alarming and reflects why our rate of economic growth remains abysmally low. Conservative estimates suggest that our growth rate is below eight percent. It is the government’s responsibility to create jobs for the youth because they are the backbone of our society and economy.

There is no dearth of professionals and educated youth in the country. However, what is needed at this stage is an out-of-the-box approach to tackle the situation. There is also a dire need to focus on research. This can only be achieved by increasing the education budget. As a result, the government should take concrete steps against this matter and create jobs for youth as soon as possible.
